latest headlines always at fox ns.com. >> a business hit for speaking your mind about obama care. warning that their earnings are take a hit because the bad press press they got. victorias job creators can't afford to stay quiet. >> it is it a frightening society. one where business owners can'tpeak their mind and say taxes do hit their bottom line and yes, they may not hire because of higher tax and health dare costs or put workers on part-time instead of fl-time. we want to know it is going on i doubt it is hurting their earnings. i don't think the back lash is that large. evyone should be allowed to speak their mind. that is it a healthy flourishing democracy. >> it is not like they are being sensor accord toth ceo's. there is a lot of bad puicity here. >> my heart testimonies me to agree with vicki, but my mind said ceo's have a first dut to increase the value of the compy for the shareholders . so they can't do anything and it is irresponsible and putting out political opinions, if it is going to cause damage to the value of the company is wrong thing to do. if they he strong opinion
and they love, put them into obama care that is not so popular and they don't necessarily love. take away something they like and give them something liberals think they should like. >> the right question is, the portuguese have an average income lower than ours with universal health care. it costs two-thirds of their economy compared to our economy. we are having the wrong discussion. here is the program. start by lowering medicare is an option to 55 or 40. stop reacting to what -- >> we'll have to continue the next one because we have a question here. who is arguing to extend all the bush tax cuts is next. wasn't my daughter's black bean soup spectacular?

-elected, obama care is the law of the land. >> now, of course, boehner promptly walked those comments back later that day. that doesn't make what he said any less of a fact. central to the implementation of that law is the creation of health care exchanges. now, let me explain. these aca exchanges are online marketplaces. in short, websites. the idea is to force insurance companies to play by the same rules and compete for a large pool of customers resulting in less expensive premiums for everyone. here's how it works. let's say you're one of the 50 million people in in country without health care. you're looking to get yourself covered. you'd log on to your state's exchange or call a hotline number. the goal is to shop around for whatever plan works best for you and your family. if you are living at 138% to 400% of the poverty line, that is a family of four living off an annual income of $31,809 to $92,200, then you are eligible for government money to subsidize the cost of your premium. if you're above that level, you don't get the federal subsidy. the law requires every state to have a place
decision, we recall back to obama care. john roberts making the surprising decision on this that the mandate was not unconstitutional. do you think that john roberts takes into consider rationing looking at the ballot measures that won in maine, maryland, minnesota and washington state and thinks about the history of being the chief justice as such a young man, he's going to be on the bench 30 more years and wanting to be on the right side of history? >> frankly, i hope he does. i believe this court needs to get on the right side of history. they have moved in that direction with lawrence v. texas. i think all eyes are going to be on justice kennedy. who voted to accept these cases. many gay and lesbian advocates did not want the cases before the court. they wanted to weight before the issue goes before this court. so, the question is who? one possibility is justice kennedy decided before he left the court he wanted to make a statement in this area to change the legacy of the court. that's the most hopeful reading. kennedy is a very interesting man. he's very, very t
listened to republicans say we can't wait to repeal obama care, and the insurance exchanges. well, where does a person turn if they are 65 years of age and the medicare eligibility age is 67? they have two years there where they may not have the best of health. they need accessible, affordable medical insurance during that period. >> congressman, is there a deal by january 1? and if there are tax increases as part of a deal, on tax rates, is there a republican civil war that's going to start? >> the president says he wants tax rate because he wants revenue. republicans already offered him the revenue. the president also says he wants a balanced approach. that means 2 1/2 to 3 times as many spending cuts as there are two revenue. we have spent all of this time talking about revenue. but as we watched, our government continued to spend more. this is really about spending. you listen to the senator right there, he doesn't want to move on spending. and that's the core of the problem. i don't think republicans or americans want to raise any taxes just to continue the spending in washington. t
obama's health care act, $116 billion in medicare savings, which a lot of republicans, not you, but a lot of republicans in the last campaign, including mitt romney, ran against. >> well, george, first of all, the $700 billion in savings doesn't save the government a penny, because it takes that 7$700 billion and spends it on other people. what -- it's really important that people look. the government is twice the size it was 11 years ago, we have seen the president demand that we're going to solve 7% of this problem, but he's totally inflexible on the other 93%. it doesn't really matter what happens at the end of this year, because ultimately, the numbers and the bondholders throughout the world, will determine what we'll spend and what we won't. we can play the political game that is being played out in washington right now. or we could actually be absolutely honest with the american people, and say medicare is going bankrupt, social security bankrupt in two years, social security trust fund will be bankrupt in five years, social security total will be bankrupt in probably 16
insurance. >> he said we spend too much time concentrating on o obama and not our positions. don't forget that it was jim demint in 2009 who said that if we stop him on health care, this will be his waterloo. we will break him. he faid to do that. he has been a very partisan guy his whole time in the senate. >> he was one of the senators to vote against the international treaty for disabilities, with bob worldwide on the floor of the senate i don't understand that. -- with bob dole might on th floor of the senate's. i don't understand that. >> it was a un thing.. >> nina is right. the totally fabricated specter of u.n. helicopters coming to home schooling parents and takiking their children away from themem. thesguys live in absolute terror of a primary challenge to eight republicans supported the equivalent of a bill supppported by y it george bush and backed by mr. republican himself, bob dole, who for 67 years has walked around with one arm 2.5 inches shorter and limb from his injuries from wod war ii. >> i don't think i've ever seen a larger ratio of enthusiasm and passion to substanc
. >> what he extend health care to those workers in the room? >> it wasn't just an obama or reagan speech. it was a jack kemp speech. that was what jack kemp represented. jack kemp belief and practice that the republicans had to campaign in barrios and g hettos in every ethnic neighborhood. it is the difference between a five minutes till dawn conservative like jack kemp for reagan as opposed to the five minutes until midnight conservative like mitt romney. >> the big tent is what we're talking about, right, charles? >> i think he has that kemp appeal to all classes. he thought that republicans ought not to be the party of big business. that was the image that romney gave. we have a new generation rising a news/that assad is holed up in the palace reading the treaty on chemical weapons. [laughter] >> believe it or not, charles, we get your point about treaties. hillary clinton about 2016. she says that it is flattering, i'm not interested. >> she does not really say that. anybody who saw the video that introduced her at the conference last weekend would have no doubt that she has least th
and boehner, it's come down to the two of them, are both looking at the fact that obama won the election and he should get a tilt in his discretion, a 60-40 deal? >> i think boehner is a realist and when he said things like bahama care is the law of the land and backtracked a little, that's a signal. he's saying let's jump off the boat together, not the cliff, the boat. it's about legacy for both of them. chris: the president seems to insist on a rate hike for the top bracket, something close from 35 to 39.6. does he need something more in terms of taxing the rich, like getting rid of deductions for mortgage, charity, state, local? >> he's already got in his package which totals $1.6 trillion, an additional closing loopholes, capping deductions, so yes, he does need more. the president's in a very interesting position. he's got the high ground. he has narrowed the focus. he's got john boehner has his intermediary, his contact. i'm told that white house officials have been talking almost constantly with boehner's people in a very specific discussion about the details of the package so i t
health care and cuts in discretionary spending. other than that, no specifics. president obama wasn't feeling it. he said the gop must agree to one thing to get anywhere close do a deal. >>. >> wee going to have to see the rates on the top 2% go up and we're not going to be able to get a deal without it. >> speaker boehner fired back. >> this week, we made a good faith offer to avert the fiscal crisis. now, we need a response from the white house. we can't sit here and negotiate with ourselves. >> so, here we are, just over three weeks from going over the fiscal cliff. you're probably getting a lot of stuff around the house this weekend wondering what the heck is going on in these houses in washington. this is the worst of american politics. they put themselves and their political games first and put your future and prosperity second, but hey, you voted them into office. remember what happened the last time washington got into a budget battle like this? lawmakers put a band-aid on the problem and the u.s. lost its aaa crediting rating. i've warned you over and over about the economi

. announcer: you don't have to be perfect to be a perfect parent. there are thousands of teens in foster care who don't need perfection, they need you. neil: what the government wants under your hood gives washington access to everything about you. the obama administrati skated the plan to put black boxes in every new car. this is an invasion of privacy, and fox news legal analysts says it is 100% legal. mercedes, to their point, administration's point would ascertain the reason behind an accident and if we had this with the toyota cars, the brakes going, gng off cliffs, whatever was going on, we could have resolved it legally long beforehand; right? >> what a great idea. so maay individuals either use the cars inappropriately, speeding down the road, breaking, not paying attention, didn't belt in, and suddenly, there's something that records all of that activity that can say, wait a minute, it's not the product. it's the manner in which the product was used. it's going to save lots of money for the corporations who create the cars, two, it can provide insight as to whether there's criminalit
